Brock Lesnar made his way to the ring alongside his advocate, Paul Heyman to kick-off last night’s episode of WWE Raw. The advocate cut a usual promo about his client stealing the title from Rollins at Extreme Rules cashing in Money in the Bank contract. Plus, he also informed us about a number one contender’s match on the show for the Universal Championship.
It was a cross-branded top 10 All-Star Battle Royal featuring Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, Big E, Cesaro, Braun Strowman, Rey Mysterio, Baron Corbin, Sami Zayn, Bobby Lashley, and Roman Reigns. In the end, it was Seth Rollins who eliminated Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman, single-handedly. He also toppled Randy Orton after hitting a Stomp to win the entire match. So we now officially have Seth Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar set for the Universal title at Summerslam 2019.
Just one night ago, WWE Extreme Rules had an unexpected finish with the sudden resurfacing of the ‘Purveyor of Paranoia’. As per the given spoiler by Paul Heyman, Brock Lesnar appeared with his Money in the Bank briefcase to cash it in on the Universal Champion, Seth Rollins. Although the champ was on his two feet, he could not defend himself from the wrath of the beast incarnate (via WWE.com)
“His victory was short-lived, as Lesnar’s music hit almost immediately and The Conqueror strolled through the curtain, Heyman at his side and contract in hand. Torn between standing his guard and coming to the aid of Lynch, who was stirring at ringside, Rollins was easy prey for a pair of German Suplexes, at which point the cash-in was called in earnest and Lesnar administered a single F-5 to pin Rollins and regain his championship.”
Seth Rollins could not believe what just happened as the moments of celebration with his real-life girlfriend was burnt by the Carnivorous of the WWE Raw roster. But we did assume that The Architect would stop at nothing to seek redemption against the man whom he had a long history with. So a rematch at Summerslam was always expected which WWE confirmed, last night in the form of a Wrestlemania rematch.
